Austrian team for the Salzburg world's

Austria has named its starting lineup for the upcoming World Championships in Salzburg, six for the road race and two for the time trial. Pro Tour riders Bernhard Eisel, Rene Haselbacher, Bernhard Kohl, Georg Totschnig and Peter Wrolich had been previously selected, and now Christian Pfannberger of Continental Professional Team Elk Haus will join them on the road team.

Peter Luttenberger and Thomas Rohregger will represent their homeland in the time trial. Rohregger is also an alternate for the road race.

The riders will participate in a joint training camp in Bad Tatsmannsdorf from Sept. 11 to 21. Alternates Gerrit Glomser and Gerhard Trampusch will also be there. "We don't have to name our definite six starters until one day before the race on Sept. 23," noted national trainer Franz Hartl. "If one of our six starters should get sick, then we will name one of the alternates."
